You might want to recheck that. Memfis is absolutely correct.

 

You are suggesting that the answers are wrong, right? Otherwise you should probably point what what of your own answers are wrong in a spoiler. Kind of defeats the whole point otherwise.

Well, I misunderstood what's called "nothing happened" because I thought you can save, but nothing is saved. Tried that out, when you press enter at the "Save game" option, it just plays the "dang" sound and nothing else happened, as the same shown in the code.

 

BTW, can I request more questions? Something like "If you save and load the game after a Revenant launchers a homing missile to you, what happened?".

Or...which is the first map in Doom that has water as a floor?

1. The only available scrolling linedef action in vanilla scrolls left.

 

2. I didn't ever count. This is my guess: 10 ammo, 4 shells, 1 rocket, 20 cells. I don't know why this would be different on UV than it is on other skill levels that don't double your ammo pickups.

 

3. Fists, Chainsaw, Pistol, Chaingun, Rocket Launcher, Plasma gun and SSG.

 

4. The same color as the Cacodemon, which has green eyes.

 

5. It won't work, because Doom only  allows you to save when you are in a level.

Actually I don't mind these questions... even though you might think this is too detailed to be asked.

I wasn't sure about 5, but guessed the correct answer. I knew the rest without a problem.

1. Oh I know that one, left!

2. who cares, who cares, who cares, half a BFG shot

3. It's impossible to know exactly, because who would switch away from the SSG?

4. Sorry, not my type.

5. I don't know but it should bomb out saying "git gud and stop saving u scrub".

Not sure if these are actually fair:

 

6. If you pick up the berserk and don't exit the map, your increased strength will stop working:

a) After 30 seconds.

b) After 1 hour.

c) After 4 years.

d) Never.

 

7. There is NO glitch allowing a non-cheating player to:

a) Press a switch through a 1-sided wall.

b) Press a switch further than 64 units away from him.

c) Press a switch from the back side.

d) Press a switch so much above him that he can't see it.

 

8. A non-cheating player can become able to pass through some impassable 1-sided walls, but NEVER directly because of:

a) Rocket explosion thrust force.

b) Getting crushed while moving.

c) Hitscan fired across too many lines.

d) Pushing against a well-shaped corner.

Perhaps you should specify which Doom version you are talking about.

MY GUESSES:

 

1- left
2- 1 rocket, 4 shells, 20 cells, 20 bullets
3- 5
4- green
5- nothing

 

---

 

What the fuck, the backpack only gives 10 bullets?! What a rip! I also forgot about the SSG not lighting up 3 and didn't count the fists as a weapon (feels weird to call something attached to your body a weapon, but it makes sense as it takes up a slot)

Backpack equals 1 clip, 1 set of 4 shells, 1 rocket, and one mini cell pack, you can see it like that. Also, melee weapons

  1. Right
  2. 4 shells, 10 bullets, 1 rocket, 20 cells (one small pickup for each ammo type)
  3. 6 if we don't count the fist, 7 if we do
  4. Uh, green I think? (If you ask "what color does your spouse/significant other have," I wonder how many would get that wrong.)
  5. I have no blooming idea.

Hmm... 3/5 (should be 4/5, since my answer to number 5 was factually correct. ;-))

1. To the left.

2. 10, 4, 1, 20.

3. 6.

Spoiler

The player starts with the Fist (slot 1, which is "invisible") and Pistol (slot 2) by default. Each slot has only one weapon designated to them, with the exception of slots 1 and 3, which can hold two weapons - respectively, the Fist and Chainsaw in slot 1 and the Shotgun and SSG in slot 3. Hence, the player can have up to 6 weapons as pictured.

 

EDIT: Nevermind, I was wrong.

4. Green.

5. Taking a wild guess and saying it does nothing.

I was under an impression that, implicitly, we're all talking about Doom2.exe v1.9 in this thread.

I never realised that having the SSG doesn't light up the '3' in the status bar. Sometimes it seems like Doom's mysteries never end.

In Doom nothing happens. On the title screen it says you can't save if you aren't playing. In Heretic/Hexen it saves successfully but the savegame crashes if you try to load it; if you try to save from the title screen it crashes.

 Heh. Got all right except for this thing with the ssg not lighting up. It's something one doesn't ever really pay attention to after playing for 23 years.
